PRESIDENT JOSEPH BOAKAI SECRETLY PROMISED TO ESTABLISH THE WAR AND ECONOMIC CRIMES COURT IN LIBERIA

Date:

MONROVIA – President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has reportedly made a secret commitment to establish the long-awaited War and Economic Crimes Court in Liberia. As Lyndon J. Ponnie Sr., reports, this revelation comes ahead of an upcoming documentary that aims to promote the establishment of these courts.

According to sources close to the matter, President Boakai made this promise during a meeting with Mr. Allan White, who is actively advocating for the establishment of the court. The meeting between President Boakai and Dr. White apparently discreetly took place, highlighting the sensitivity of the matter. The new Liberian leader assured the US Government of his readiness to establish the courts.

Dr. White, a prominent figure in the pursuit of justice in Liberia, managed to secure President Boakai’s commitment for the establishment of the courts. This development has raised hopes among the victims of war crimes and economic injustices, who have long been seeking accountability for the atrocities committed during the civil war.

It is worth noting that General Prince Johnson, the former Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL) rebel leader infamous for his role in the Caldwell base massacre, played a significant role in President Boakai’s election. His support and influence were instrumental in securing Boakai’s victory. However, it remains to be seen how this commitment to establish the War and Economic Crimes Court will impact their relationship.

The upcoming documentary, which is set to be released shortly, is expected to shed light on the importance of establishing these courts and the potential impact they could have on the country’s healing and reconciliation process. It will provide a platform for victims, activists, and key stakeholders to express their perspectives and advocate for justice.

The establishment of the War and Economic Crimes Court has been a long-standing demand from both domestic and international communities. If President Boakai follows through on his commitment, it could signify a significant step towards addressing the dark chapter of Liberia’s history and ensuring accountability for those responsible for heinous crimes.

As the documentary release approaches, the eyes of the nation and the international community will be fixed on Liberia, eagerly awaiting further developments regarding the establishment of the much-anticipated War and Economic Crimes Court.
